   Dec-10-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
Eatman: For this FM this is the most impressive game by AlphaZero. It is like Tal combined with Karpov. Deluded Stockfish thinks it is up +1/+2 in mid 20s but Black is quite lost at move 34, so Rd8 is not as strange as it seems. Try running Stockfish 6/7/8 on your quad core computers for ...
   Jul-06-07 Stellwagen vs Smeets, 2007 (replies)
Eatman: Googlebot is getting smarter, even leaving comments on chessgames.. :) As for game, looks like Na4 was a mistake after that white had that nice queen trap.
   Jul-04-07 micro-Max (Computer) (replies)
Eatman: What kind of hardware was micro-Max running at the 15th computer WCH? seems like its search depth was not up to par
   Jul-04-07 GridChess vs Rybka, 2007 (replies)
Eatman: Possibly Rybka is programmed to go into cat vs caught mouse mode at certain times...:)
   Jul-04-07 Robert Akopian
Eatman: Akopian is a very common last name in Armenia (about same as Smith in US), soit is not a given.
   Jun-29-07 Kasparov vs J Srinivasan, 1995 (replies)
Eatman: White does have 21. ... Qh4+ 22. Qh3 but then simply 22. ... Nxf1+ 23. Kg2 Qxh3+ 24. Kxh3 Re8 leaves black a piece up
   Apr-07-07 Keres vs Petrosian, 1953 (replies)
Eatman: As Bronstein notes, the most fascinating thing about this game is how Keres foresaw attacking possibilities on h-file while pretending to play slow positional chess on queenside and center.
   Apr-07-07 Bronstein vs Keres, 1953 (replies)
Eatman: Interestingly enough, Bronstein notes that 18. ... Ra8 (moving rook back again!) would have saved black from immediate harm, although their position would remain questionable.
   Apr-07-07 Keres vs Boleslavsky, 1953 (replies)
Eatman: Nasmichael if you are still around, I am sure you understand that since black are down a whole rook and white has consolidated (black has no threats left), white knight is going back home safely. Boleslavsky had prepared this sacrificial variation at home but had not counted on ...
   Apr-07-07 Boleslavsky vs Geller, 1953 (replies)
Eatman: According to Bronstein in The BOOK, Boleslavsky had ingeniously calculated that he could defend both king and knight on 25. ... Rc3+ with 26. Rd3 ??!! with the only slight problem being that particular move was not street legal... :)
